Google has announced the much-anticipated successor to the Nexus 7, released a little over a year ago, today at a small press conference. Hugo Barra introduced the device, which has been leaked extensively in the past month (several of those times being here, more recently).

The new Nexus 7 is thinner by 1.8mm, and narrower by 2.75mm on each side of the bezel in portrait orientation. It's also 50 grams lighter.

The new Nexus 7, which has already been fully revealed and benchmarked earlier today, just popped up on BestBuy.com for pre-order in both 16 and 32 GB capacities. As expected, the refreshed 2013 N7 runs:

  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (you can read about some of the new Android 4.3 features here)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro @ 1.5GHz processor with Adreno 320 GPU
  • 2GB DDR3 RAM
  • 7" 1920x1200 IPS display with antifingerprint and scratch-resistant glass
  • 16/32GB internal storage
  • 5MP rear and 1.2MP front-facing cameras
  • SlimPort
  • BT 4.0
  • Notification LED
  • No SD card (did you really expect one?)
  • 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • NFC
  • Qi wireless charging-compatible
  • 3,950 mAh battery (up to 9 hours of active use)
  • 7.9" x 4.5" x 0.3"
  • 11.2oz

Wireless charging isn't mentioned, so I'm becoming less and less convinced it's capable of such a feat.

Google is set to (probably) announce the new and improved Nexus 7 tomorrow, but we've been taking a look at the device ahead of time. Some of the specs from previous rumors were dead on, and some not so much. We've got all the details and benchmarks right here. So let's dive in.

The new Nexus 7 is no secret. It's been leaked, leaked, and leaked again. But up until today, we hadn't seen the actual device in the flesh. One lucky soul was able to get his hands on a retail version of the new N7 and has provided us with essentially every angle, pose, nook, and cranny of the device – he even offered up a couple of pictures of the box.

Yesterday, @evleaks scored several press images of the new Nexus 7, which is expected to be revealed by Google on July 24th. Not even a day later, we now have an exclusive gallery of more recent press shots that not only offer several more angles, but also showcase what I believe is the new default Android 4.3 Nexus wallpaper which replaces the Android 4.2 wallpaper seen in the previous pictures.

The new Nexus 7 leaks just keep on coming. The venerable @evleaks has just posted a high-resolution press shot of the still-unannounced tablet. It matches up with previous leaks quite nicely.

The image shows a device with big top and bottom bezels, a front notification light, and dual speakers on the back. The rear-facing camera is there, as is the sideways Nexus logo. Also, note the odd placement of the front-facing camera.

Google can play dumb all it wants – we know a new Nexus 7 is coming, and apparently so does Best Buy. A leaked ad from the electronics retailer shows the new Nexus 7 set to arrive on July 30th for the previously rumored price of $229.99.

The PadFone is a versatile piece of tech, a smartphone that plugs into a tablet that plugs into a dock. It's an interesting concept, and if you don't use it that often, the three pieces together could probably get you through more than a couple of days on a single charge. Now ASUS is providing a firmware update to the original PadFone, bringing about stability improvements along with stronger WiFi and Bluetooth connections.

It's pretty much a foregone conclusion that a new Nexus 7 is just around the corner, but a few more plausible details are leaking out. According to some info passed to Engadget, the updated 7-inch slate will come with Android 4.3, wireless charging, and SlimPort video out. It also confirms the dual cameras from the last leak.

We don't know what version of wireless charging will be featured, assuming this is legit.

Yesterday's video for the allegedly "new" Nexus 7, widely speculated to be revealed at Google's July 24th event, was a bit low-fi to get the details. Today CNET has a new image, purportedly from the same source, that gives us a clearer image of that specification sticker on the back of the tablet. There's just one new piece of information that we couldn't make out before, under the "Memory" entry: DDR3LM 1600 256M*16.
